The adrenal cortex helps to maintain salt and water balance in the body. It is also involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and the regulation of blood sugar. The cortex produces a sex hormone similar to that secreted by the testes as well. The medulla of the adrenal gland produces the hormone epinephrine, also called adrenaline, when the body is under stress. This hormone speeds up the rate of metabolism in order to help the body cope with stressful situations. The functioning ability of the adrenal glands is most often impaired due to extensive use of cortisone therapy for nonendocrine diseases, such as arthritis and asthma. Long-term use of cortisone drugs causes the adrenal gland to shrink in size. Pituitary disease and tuberculosis also cause adrenocortical failure.
In conventional medical circles, people suffering from stress are generally diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome though some are given more erudite sounding pronouncements that appear to refer to viruses, like Epstein-Barr Syndrome or Cytomegalovirus. Some are told that they are allergic or environmentally sensitive.
